Yes, you can be charged criminally and have a family petition filed against you based on the same exact circumstances... Generally, the family court case is considered civil and not criminal and as a result there is no issue.
Yes. Double jeopardy does not attach other than in criminal matters (i.e. both in criminal). Also, in your situation, the "sentence" (and the very purposes and goals of these two courts) are markedly different. Parenthetically, double jeopardy does not attach for a state crime and a federal crime stemming from the same criminal act.
